PME Professional Diploma in Sugar Flowers

We kneaded and kneaded, added colour and kneaded some more. We rolled, we stretched, dusted, cut, frilled, pierced, layered and screamed at our failure to create something/anything similar to what Calvin showed! *mumbles under our breath.... what did we get ourselves into?!*

The last day (graduation day) was the most taxing. We dusted, and dusted and sneezed a rainbow of petal dust. Then came the binding of the flowers. Some took notes, some didn't.... others screamed, "Calvin, help!!" But we persevered, although come 9pm some were packing up and prepared to leave unfinished. Let me give you an idea of how long a day it was, I left the place at almost midnight!

And so we all graduated, and we have pictures to prove!

A Christmas arrangement - Poinsettias.
The strawberry and blackberry bushes.

Ivy, you did all four arrangements? I thought you only had to do one je?

I bet the first course was a breeze compared to this one kan?

So are you all geared up to finish the last module?

Wiz, we made all 4 arrangements but the wedding bouquet was the one necessary for PME UK's approval.
